Nuclear Safety Shortfalls at Rosyth Dockyard

Posted: 10th September 2021

A nuclear safety check at the Rosyth Dockyard has found “several
shortfalls” which were branded “significant” by inspectors. Site operator
Babcock has been ordered to make “improvements” after a report by the
Office of Nuclear Regulation (ONR) rated compliance against two key
conditions as “amber”. The issues related to arrangements for nuclear
safety roles at Rosyth Royal Dockyard Ltd (RRDL), and included “several
significant gaps and errors in the records sampled”. The ONR said it
involved “written arrangements and record keeping”, and that there was
“no risk to the public or workers at Rosyth”.
